It all looks in good shape Peter. Where is the engine?

The car ran and drove fine before I began the restoration. Engine and transmission in my garage (photo of frame is in my painter's garage) and I will spruce the mechanics up, but no need to rebuild the engine as far as I can tell.

Did find a bent steering rod and brake rod, but other than that, not too many surprises so far.

Hey Scott,

Having owned and restored both A Series and 4A Roadsters, I'd agree that you have a nice, solid project car there.

I'm sure that it is going to look great when it is done! Look forward ot more updates...
